Please tell me you guys watched this race! I only really started paying attention in the last 30km, but so worth it.
When keeping it real goes terribly wrong.

    I watched it. Started on the last lap. It was odd when they lost live race footage the last 4km but at the same time it made the ending even more suspenseful. Great finish. I saw there's now overhead footage for the missing 4km but haven't watched yet.

    I liked how Peter thanked "his friends" in the peloton that helped him too.

    I was on the edge of my seat for the last K but had the last hour or so on as background noise. It was a fantastic race made even more surprisingly b/c I didn't recognize Sagan in his national colors (I'm a moron).

    Only down side of the race in my mind was Bling ending up on the podium. Every interview he complains about doing too much work - he had an entire team there riding in support of him. He is either admitting he is stupid for working so much or he is indirectly throwing his team under the bus. Based on how often he directly blames his team (national or trade), I have to guess it's the latter. I can't stand that guy.

    Yeah Sagan!

    *I am a self admitted Matthews hater (not sure how it started) and a Sagan fanboy.
